Large, oblong book with illustrated boards and gilt titles. Boards are rubbed and worn. Corners and spine ends scuffed through and bits of the cloth are missing at the head and tail of spine. End paper at front hinge is cracked but binding is holding. Clean, unmarked pages. 64 pages. This is a book length poem with fourteen illustrated plates dispersed throughout the text. Each plate is protected by a tissue guard, though the tissue is missing from plate V. The illustrations are truly stunning. The Bridal of Triermain is a rhymed, romantic, narrative-poem, written in 1813. It celebrates the exploits of a knight errant - Sir Roland De Vaux - as he seeks to rescue (and hopefully espouse) a beautiful maiden, Gyneth, who is the illegitimate daughter of King Arthur. Doomed by Merlin 500 years previously to an enchanted sleep inside a magic castle, she awaits her brave and noble rescue.
